The destination variables for the Conversant Ad Server Tag are built into its Data Mapping tab. Available categories are:

Standard

Event Type (event_type) Uniquely identifies each type of interaction that is tracked on the site. Used in the MCT/Container and ROI/Conversion tags.

  • You want to override any extension mappings.
  • Your desired e-commerce variable is not offered in the extension.

Transaction ID / Order ID (transaction_id) A unique ID to identify a customer order. Use this to overwrite the e-commerce variable _corder. Used in the MCT/Container and ROI/Conversion tags.
